The image below shows off the behavior of a tilt-sensitive paint preset. I used a Wacom tablet and pen to paint a few air brush paint strokes. Note that depending on how I hold the pen in relation to the tablet surface, I can generate a circular air brush spray pattern, or use pen tilt and tilt orientation to direct the orientation and edge density of the directional air brush paint spray.
The particular factory paint preset i’m using in the above drawing example is called Particle Spray1, and is part of the oldWorkFavorites preset favorites category. There are also similar tilt direction spray paint effects available in the Wacom factory paint preset Collection.
I thought it was worth taking a look under the hood of this paint preset to get a feel for how you can use interactive modulation to create extremely expressive paint effects based on Wacom pen modulation. I’m using a Wacom Intuos tablet, because it offers pen tilt and tilt-orientaiton modulation in addition to pen pressure modulation. We are using all 3 different kinds of modulation simultaneously in this paint preset.
The 1st gallery image below shows the Pen Mode control panel. Note that the Pen Mode is set to use the Autodraw Interactive pen mode option with a Scan Spacing set to 0. Setting the Scan Spacing to 0 will give a continuous running spray effect. Try setting the Scan Spacing to a higher setting, and note that individual auto-drawn paths will occur individually as the pen moves, stopping drawing if the pen stops moving.
